Every time you make a short trip down to the shops to buy some milk or supplies its costing you heaps in fuel just to get there.

On a full charge these powered electric skateboards will travel around 20km for a total investment of around $0.06 - $0.07 (cents). Thats a massive saving compared to combustable fuels such as petrol, gas or diesel.
